Light Up Philly

It Starts July 4, 2016


City of Philadelphia Commercial Benchmarking begins:

Light Up Philly applauds the leadership of Mayor Michael Nutter, back in 2012, as well as the leadership of Philadelphia City Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown who in 2012 introduced Bill # 120428, to require commercial buildings in Philadelphia over 50,000 square feet to benchmark and disclose their energy and water consumption to the City on an annual basis. The law was approved unanimously by City Council and took effect June 1, 2013. Benchmarking will be administered by the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability. Light Up Philly believes that benchmarking is integral to success since measurement is the key to management.

Momentum continued in 2013 with the ititial PECO rebates.
